That is true, and understandable. However, there are The Mandalorian baby Yoda Daddylorian t-shirt who don’t let those experiences taint their compassion. Several years ago I moved to Philly, and during my search for housing there, I met, through serendipity, a lady who had just had a long-time associate of hers, and someone that she trusted completely, betray her and try to take advantage of her in a most egregious way.
Amazingly, that did not stop her from helping me, at the time a total stranger to her, with my search and with several other issues regarding my move to Philly. It would take me to long to explain all the stuff she did for me, but suffice to say that we still talk to each other and she still is an angel in my life and one of my dearest friends.
Some people just have a huge heart. Some people just have that The Mandalorian baby Yoda Daddylorian t-shirt in them. It’s much easier said than done but I agree. A lot of us have been hurt so we hurt others or cling on to the security we have for fear of being taken advantage of and losing it. It takes a lot of bravery to be kind. It’s a tough balance to feel empathy and act on it. The line is protecting ourselves. I agree it’s not easy. Grateful to see an example of a person with some privilege using it to help others. I think that’s the key.
My sister lived in a 1 bedroom with her husband and 2 kids for 4 years. Now she owns a 2 family home and the first renters she chose for the 1 bedroom apt was a couple with a young child who couldn’t afford anything bigger but had been turned away from other 1 bedroom rentals. Not every landlord can afford to wait on rent but there are ways to be kind and thoughtful of others while staying within your means. Good landlords do exist.
I totally understand the sentiments here, but as a realtor familiar with fair housing laws I have to caution you: it is illegal to choose one renter over another because of their familial status. Your landlord may be the best, but you could get them in a lot of trouble sharing that story.
It’s not the fault of Realtors that they have to follow the law, or of landlords that don’t live in a part of their rental., And in most cases, we wouldn’t want to support discrimination, like someone who refused to rent to The Mandalorian baby Yoda Daddylorian t-shirt but whites. Thank you, Heather Theiss for watching out for the OP and trying to keep them out of trouble.
The house I grew up in was a rental, and the landlord was an angel like Mr Petrowski. Dad’s health was poor, and after his first heart attack there were periods where we went months without being able to pay the rent because dad couldn’t work. Our The Mandalorian baby Yoda Daddylorian t-shirt always gave us time, and we always got caught up eventually, but it was his patience and his willingness to be a friend before he was worried about making money that let us live.
That house made a million memories for me, my siblings, my friends, and everyone that ever came there, but we were only able to fill it with love because someone gave us a little bit of love first. I hope someday I can be a The Mandalorian baby Yoda Daddylorian t-shirt like that for someone else who needs it.
